COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moose Drool is our Brown Ale. Far and away the best selling beer brewed in Montana, Moose Drool is chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. Our brown ale is a malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma also mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spiciness being added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Note: ABV went down to 5.1%.

I really enjoyed this beer when I went to Yellowstone. A word of caution- elevation does make a difference.

On tap at a restaurant where they couldn’t tell me what type of beer it was or who brewed it: It looked like Coca Cola in the glass, except a Coke has more head. The aroma is chocolate coated caramel. This seemed a bit thin, watery, but I suspect much had to do with the restaurant bar. The flavor was good, caramel, chocolate, a very slight earthy hop presence. I definitely have to try this someplace else and rerate.

Pours a deep brown with a lasting, off-white head. Aroma is heavily chocolate with some caramel. Flavor reflects aroma and is very clean with a nice balanced sweetness. Body is med-heavy. Finish is mildly bitter. Very nice brown ale.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 bottle 12 oz. Clear drk brown w a cherry tint when held up to the light. Fair beige/tan head that fell quick, not much lace. Aroma is fresh, medium toasted malt and grain w mild hops. Flavor is clean med/drk roast malt w the mild hops, not too sweet, w a nice moderately bitter finish. There is a nice toasted flavor to the malt w a touch of chocolate noticable. Medium bodied. Not bad for a brown ale, but I think this is more like a porter. There is a sense of thin & watery to the mouthfeel but it is easy to overlook with everything else going on. Will drink this again without hesitation. 5/1/06: I’m dropping this down .2 to 3.3. It’s OK but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Pours dark brown with ruby hues, mostly receding tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and crystal malts. Starts with a dollop of roast, but is well-balanced by sweet crystal malts. Body is silky, slightly oily with high carbonation. Finishes moderately sweet, slightly bitter.

Just had a bottle come my way through a generous soul. Very nice russet, crimson, brown. Excellent aroma, and very inviting flavor. The malt is creamy and roasted and hints of caramel roll lazily around and on the palate. Very clean hoppy finish lends the perfect balance to this beer. Most browns are either too strong or piss water poor. I love this stuff. God help me if I ever find it on tap.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Welcome to Maryland - Dark chestnut brown, tan creamy head. Soft subtle nose of roasted chocolate nougat, nut (maybe almond), toast, and light brown sugar. Rich malted flavors of toasty chocolate up front, nuttiness throughout, and light hop bitterness bringing up the rear. Good balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy, malty finish. A great session brew for anytime of the year....
